  1. Nature of RentBahamas.com Services.

Rent Bahamas Company Ltd is a media company which operates RentBahamas.com as an advertisement platform. All rental listings and advertisements seen on RentBahamas.com are based on information provided by third parties qualified to do so and who may or may not be affiliated with Rent Bahamas Company Ltd. Accordingly, RentBahamas.com is not responsible in any way for the content in any such advertisements, nor is RentBahamas.com responsible for any actual lease transactions. RentBahamas.com is not licensed as a real estate broker in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, as such RentBahamas.com does not render legal, brokerage, or other professional advice or services to its Users.

  1. Services Not Provided.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Users acknowledge and agree as follows:

  1. RentBahamas.com does not participate in any actual lease transactions, including, without limitation, negotiations, discussions, or proposals, and Users expressly waive any requirement that purports to impose on RentBahamas.com an obligation to perform any services other than those expressly undertaken by RentBahamas.com;
  2. RentBahamas.com does not render legal, brokerage, or other professional advice or services; in the event that Users desire or need such services, RentBahamas.com strongly advises Users to secure the same from an appropriate provider;
  3. RentBahamas.com is not undertaking any, and has no, duties to Users, including, without limitation, the obligation to inspect rental properties, to verify the veracity of information contained in an advertisement, or to interview or otherwise screen Users;
  4. RentBahamas.com is not responsible for the content of, nor does it endorse, the third-party websites to which Users may link using this Website;
  5. RentBahamas.com does not guarantee the accuracy of any information available on RentBahamas.com, and is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or misrepresentations, and all information obtained on this Website must be verified independently;
  6. RentBahamas.com may make changes to its products and/or services and this Website or mobile applications at any time and without notifying Users or receiving Users consent; and

While RentBahamas.com complies with all applicable laws of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, RentBahamas.com cannot guarantee that its Users so comply. Accordingly, RentBahamas.com assumes no liability for Users’ and/or properties’ failure to comply with such laws.

  1. Indemnity.

You will indemnify and hold us (and our officers, directors, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees), harmless from any cost, liability, charge, penalties, claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other costs of collection, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party, or incurred by us as a result of your default under this Agreement.

  1. Resolution of Disputes.

If a dispute arises between Users and RentBahamas.com, our goal is to provide Users with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, Users and RentBahamas.com agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or our services (a “Claim”) in accordance with the subsections below or as we and Users otherwise agree in writing.

  • In the event that either party to these Terms of Use has a dispute relating to or arising from these Terms of Use or the use of the Site or Mobile App, it must immediately notify the other party in writing giving details of the dispute. If the parties cannot resolve the dispute within twenty-one (21) days of receipt of the notice provided for above, the dispute will then be submitted for Court annexed arbitration in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
  • BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, EACH PARTY UNDERSTANDS THAT BOTH USERS AND WE ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. BOTH PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, UNLESS THE PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
  • If these terms relating to class or representative procedures are legally unenforceable for any reason with respect to a claim, then this agreement to arbitrate will be inapplicable to that claim, and the claim will instead be handled through litigation in court, rather than by arbitration, on the terms below.
  • The arbitrator will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided for under applicable law, with the exception of punitive damages to which neither party will be entitled.
  1. Notices

Except as explicitly stated otherwise, notices should be sent to us at the following address:

  1. App Terms.

If Users accessed or downloaded our mobile application through an App Store (‘App-provider’) (Apple App Store and/or Google Play Store or any other such application), it is an “App Store Sourced Application” for purposes of these Terms of Use, and Users will use the App Store Sourced Application only: (i) on an applicable product; and (ii) as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the App Store Terms of Service. We reserve all rights in and to the App Store Sourced Application not expressly granted to Users under these Terms of Use.

Users acknowledge and agree that (i) these Terms of Use are valid between Users and us only, and not the applicable App-provider.

Users acknowledge that app-providers have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App Store Sourced Application.

In the event of any failure of the App Store Sourced Application to conform to any applicable warranty, Users may notify the app-provider, and app-provider will, where applicable, refund the purchase price for the App Store Sourced Application to Users and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, App-providers will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App Store Sourced Application. As between us and app-providers, any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our sole responsibility.

Users and we acknowledge that, as between us and all app-providers, the said app-providers are not responsible for addressing any claims Users have or any claims of any third party relating to the App Store Sourced Application or your possession and use of the App Store Sourced Application, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App Store Sourced Application fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.

Users and we acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the App Store Sourced Application or your possession and use of that App Store Sourced Application infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, as between us and any app-provider, we, not the said app-provider, shall be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement.

Users and we acknowledge and agree that all app-+providers, are third party beneficiaries relating to your license of the App Store Sourced Application, and that, upon Users acceptance of these Terms of Use, all app-providers shall have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the rights under these Terms of Use as related to your license of the App Store Sourced Application against Users as a third party beneficiary thereof.

Without limiting any other provisions of these Terms of Use, Users must comply with all applicable third-party agreements when using the App Store Sourced Application.

If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall continue in effect.
